"WEST OF TRAIL! Feel like you re on vacation every day in this move-in-ready, custom-built home (1978) by renowned builder Ammon Schrock, well-known for his Old World craftsmanship and innovative design. Perched on an over-sized corner lot across from million-dollar waterfront homes on Little Sarasota Bay, this 3 bed/2 bath home boasts an open, split floor plan, 8 ft ceilings, 2-car garage, heated pool and spa, and a peek-a-boo water view. Updates abound in this home. The remodel in 2011 includes 18-inch tile floors, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops with breakfast bar, kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, new roof, water heater, and new paint throughout. New HVAC was also added in 2017. Enjoy indoor/outdoor living at its best. Three sliders lead to a covered lanai with room to dine and entertain, and a massive, screened patio block pool deck with heated pool/spa, which were added in 2012. The fenced yard is equipped with a kayak rack to take advantage of the community amenities of Tropical Shores. This unique waterfront community with optional low-cost fees, gives members access to a community marina with boat ramp, boat docks, kayak rack and clubhouse. Or launch your kayak at the Sarasota County kayak launch just down the street and paddle to Siesta Key, Turtle Beach and secluded Midnight Pass Beach (reachable only by boat). Beat the beach traffic and kayak or boat from the community marina to Siesta Key beaches and restaurants!"
